We’ve rented Drop Anchor for our 2019 Retreat week. This year the event runs from Saturday to Saturday, with a programming format change to daily instructional sessions Monday through Thursday. We have new extracurricular events planned, along with plenty of time to write, brainstorm, reflect, beachcomb, and sightsee. Your 2019 Retreat Committee is made up of Instructors Stacy Allen, Lynn Chandler Willis, Beth “Jaden” Terrell, and Maggie Toussaint; and Local Expert and Facilitator Joseph Terrell. Space is limited to 16 registered attendees. Register now to hold your slot!

More Info about the house is HERE.

Note: Spring is typically mild, but temperatures can be unpredictable. Average daytime temperatures are normally in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
